100 Days of US is an initiative to empower people to act locally during the first 100 days of the new presidential administration to advance positive, solution-oriented responses to issues of national importance.
Launched by The Sprout Fund, a nonprofit organization based in Pittsburgh, more than $130,000 will support 27 community-led projects in the Pittsburgh region that empower people to act locally in ways that demonstrate their values and vision for America.
Sprout received more than 150 project idea applications and raised more than $34,000 in additional public support from 250 donors, including $10,000 contributions each from the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.
After public voting that generated 41,000 likes and a thorough review by 60 community advisors, Sprout selected 27 projects and 4 event sponsorships to receive 100 Days support.
The Sprout Fund will work with these project leaders to assure the successful implementation of their ideas during the first 100 days of the new administration.
A community initiative like 100 Days of US is made possible by the generous gifts of time, energy, enthusiasm, monetary support, and public leadership from hundreds of dedicated individuals that share Sprout’s commitment to Pittsburgh’s bright future. Heartfelt thanks to all who applied, donated, volunteered, and voted.
Since 2001, Sprout has supported more than 1,000 grassroots projects and initiatives and invested nearly $7 million in people and ideas with the potential to make positive change in their communities. Learn more about our work at sproutfund.org.
